WOSB (Women-Owned Small Business) Certification

July 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Both the federal government and the State of Missouri offers woman owned business certifications. Obtaining a certification can give a woman owned business a competitive advantage in being awarded either a prime contract or as a subcontractor on a government contract.

In this session, we will discuss both the state and federal woman owned business certifications. These will include the federal Small Business Administration’s (SBA) awarded Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business (EDWOSB). Additionally, we will discuss the Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) which is awarded by the Office of Equal Opportunity in the State of Missouri and the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and the Airport Concessionaire Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) which are awarded through various governmental entities such as MODOT and Lambert/KCI Airports.

We will discuss the various application processes on how to become certified as a woman owned business. This discussion will include the required steps and ownership requirements/control including the related paperwork.
